“This is a story about the Liberty State Bank in Milwaukee which is being renovated by Occupy Milwaukee to be used as a hostel for ‘Occupy’ protesters from other cities, and for Homeless Youth. The Occupy Milwaukee group has found a way to work within the laws, for the community to model occupying through the laws, and allow us to grow as a movement.” Short Video Here Full version Video Here http://youtu.be/qUd5hpTb3Ds “
“As I look up to the ceiling, and the sun shine’s thru, it is the day before Martin Luther King’s holiday. Located on Martin Luther King Drive, in a worn down building called the Liberty State Bank, The suns glistens thru the broken glass in the skylights that grace the ceiling.”
This site has ties to the past and now to the future. A site, dormant for a long time, but now has grown to have a lifeline, a pulse, and a chance to become a great place of the future. Join us, as we explore the Liberty State Bank located at 2708 N. Martin Luther King Drive
The building on the outside looks like any other dilapidated, abandoned building. If one walks close and is looking, you can still see the lettering etched into the stone.
This fitting history and the beauty of the location, mixed with the urgency and status of our time, is why this location is so perfect for what is intended by the Occupy Milwaukee group
Because of the things he had to do in life, and the hard lessons he has learned, he inscribed into the top of this building “Every Man is the Architect of His Own Fortune.”
“The ‘Occupation’ aspect of these three, ties to the concept of building something that is self-sustaining and designed to be duplicated.
